Highline Schools holding Telephone Town Hall & Public Meeting this week


This week, Highline Public Schools will be hosting two community meetings about the bond and levy measures on the February ballot – a Telephone Town Hall on Tuesday and a Public Meeting on Thursday.

All are invited to participate.

Live Telephone Town Hall on Tuesday
All community members, families, students, and staff are encouraged to join Superintendent Susan Enfield and School Board President Bernie Dorsey for a live Telephone Town Hall on Tuesday, January 27.

Callers will be able to ask questions about the bond and levy.

Tuesday, Jan. 27: 7 – 8 p.m.

All households for which the district has landline phone numbers will receive a call between 6:55 and 7:10 p.m. To participate, simply pick up the call and stay on the line.

You can also register online here. The deadline to register is 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 27.

Zenith Public Meeting on Thursday
Homeowners in the Zenith neighborhood are also encouraged to attend a public meeting regarding the potential redevelopment of the Zenith site for a new school.

Meeting participants will:

  • Get the facts on the future of the Zenith site
  • Share their concerns, interests, and ideas with district representatives
  • Learn what a school could look like on the Zenith site
  • Hear Highline’s plan for preserving trees and critical areas

Thursday, January 28: 6 – 7:30 p.m. at Des Moines Elementary School cafeteria (22001 9th Avenue, Des Moines)

A Capital Improvement Bond on the February ballot proposes to replace the district’s two oldest schools, build two new schools to accommodate growing enrollment and lower class sizes, and make critical repairs and technology upgrades districtwide. This includes building a new school on the Zenith site to serve students at Des Moines Elementary School.
